anybody know if surugaya-a-too is taking outside Japan orders again on Rakuten? At least they have some stuff back up and was thinking of ordering something.

I would hope so. There's a sign on the page that says so . . .

Nah, just going by what I see.

Might want to shoot them an email to see if they can square that away.

I guess I'll have to then. I knew i think after Noveember and early this year they had stuff down but then as it is put stuff back up. I have seen on some figure board that they may have gotten overwhelmed with the shipping rakuten campaign. Sometimes I wish I lived in Japan.

It seems that surugaya is still down, as (for example) checking the LD listings on their Rakuten yields nothing but "this product is not available for sale" on everything. I hope they come back online, as I would still like to get the Queen Millennia TV double LDBOX (among lots else) and just went to check surugaya to no avail because of the above issue.

I hope it will come back as I want to get other things they had besides LDs but it is looking that they won't but maybe they will the year isn't over yet.

Hopefully this is just a technical issue or such, instead of surugaya realizing how little they were making on international sales of stuff like LD at their often cheap prices and pulling out of the overseas market. I miss being able to get an instant anime LD dose from them during eBay dry spells, plus their great packing and like new discs.

It would be nice to find a reasonably priced JP based laserdisc seller willing to ship by sea mail though, so I could get some large boxes like the elusive UY LD50 and perhaps the also massive Touch LDBOX and more without breaking the bank on EMS shipping.

Its hard to make a living on selling lds for 500 yen over internet =)


Also, check the shipping service websites, maybe they got good deals for buying from shops. Otherwise it might be depending on what price range you buying, otherwise the extra fees might be making it very expensive. But you might earn a little on lower shipping costs.
